WP: Paul Derringer (2-1)
LP: Bobo Newsom (2-1)
HR: None.

For the second consecutive start, Paul Derringer pitched a complete game on two days' rest, as he threw a seven-hitter to get the win and the World Series Championship for the Reds, who won the best-of-seven Series 4-3. Bobo Newsom pitched a complete-game seven-hitter with 6 K's on only one day of rest in a losing effort for the Tigers. Newsom pitched three complete games in the Series. The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in the third inning when Billy Sullivan led off with a single, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Newsom, and then scored one out later following a walk to Barney McCosky and an infield single by Charlie Gehringer. Reds 3B Billy Werber committed an error on Gehringer's hit, allowing Sullivan to take the extra base and score. The Reds came back in the bottom of the seventh as Frank McCormick and Jimmy Ripple led off the inning with back-to-back doubles to tie the game at 1-1. Ripple then advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Jimmie Wilson, and then following an intentional walk to pinch-hitter Ernie Lombardi, Billy Myers lifted a sacrifice fly to CF to score Ripple with the go-ahead run. The win gave the Reds their second World Championship, and their first since 1919.
